In this chapter, we present a finite element method (FEM)-based numerical device simulation of low-voltage DNTT-based organic thin film transistor (OTFT) by considering field-dependent mobility model and double-peak Gaussian density of states model. Device simulation model is able to reproduce output characteristics in linear and saturation region and transfer characteristics below and above threshold region. We also demonstrate an approach for compact modeling and compact model parameter extraction of organic thin film transistors (OTFTs) using universal organic TFT (UOTFT) model by comparing the compact modeling results with the experimental results. Results obtained from technology computer-aided design (TCAD) simulation and compact modeling are compared and contrasted with experimental results. Further we present simulations of voltage transfer characteristic (VTC) plot of polymer P-channel thin film transistor (PTFT)-based inverter to assess the compact model against simple logic circuit simulation using SmartSpice and Gateway.
